THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE

Lauren James

Romy is the first human born in space. After the death of her crew, she’s in charge of a spaceship heading to a new planet. She’s the loneliest girl in the universe until she gets news that another, faster spaceship will join her mission . . .

A brilliant high-suspense psychological thriller set in space – I can see the movie posters already! I’m so impressed. The story took unexpected turn after turn and had me glued to its pages. I love Lauren James’s books and this, for me, was the best yet. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.

THE EPIC CRUSH OF GENIE LO

F C Yee

Genie has her hands full balancing time between school work, her best friend, and the new guy who seems to think he already knows her. Not to mention battling demons from Chinese-folklore alongside the competition she faces to get into an exclusive college. But Quentin tells Genie of her extraordinary powers and urges her to awaken them, because Genie’s small town becomes a demon hot spot and it rests on her to stop them. Powerful gods, fierce battles, and laugh-out-loud humour come together in this epic, action-packed read. Genie is awesome. Her story is fun and exciting with memorable characters to love and root for. So good!!
